Eating Disorder Recovery, Eating Disorder Treatment
Why do I do what I do?

Does this sound like you?!

Are you scared to reach out through fear of judgement and feeling that nobody truly understands?

Have you tried lots of different approaches but still feel stuck and doubt yourself whilst losing hope that you will ever be able to fully recover?

Do you feel that your confidence and self-esteem is really suffering?

I typically see 7 beliefs or behaviours holding clients back & unknowingly making their Eating Disorder worse!

01/

Feeling scared to reach out through fear of judgement & that nobody understands. So you hide your issues & become more isolated & withdrawn

ED's can be very difficult to understand if you haven’t had personal experience. There is still a stigma attached to them & a fear of admitting that you need help. Your loved ones display frustration & anger as they just can’t understand why!

 

This is where having consistent & ongoing support from an experienced therapist who has also recovered from an ED & understands the difficulties & challenges. There is no judgement & they can provide support where your loved ones can’t.

02/

Self-doubt & losing hope that you will ever be able to fully recover, so you quickly lose motivation & give in more easily to your eating disorder.

Traditional approaches have very disappointing recovery rates, with only <50% fully recovering & up to 30% still chronically suffering.  It can feel like there is no way out when you have tried & failed many times. However, a COMPLETE programme is needed with education, deep unconscious work  & tools to weaken your ED and strengthen your true self.

03/

Traditional approaches emphasis addressing all life problems in order to recover. This

 

is overwhelming, daunting daunted & impacts your motivation & self-belief.

If you compare the diagnosis criteria of an ED with the definition of recovery, they do not match. ED definitions are specific. For example:

 

  • Anorexia; associated with BMI figure (15-17), behaviours such as fasting, excessive exercise & fear of gaining weight.

  • Bulimia; binge eating & inappropriate compensatory behaviours at least once a week for 3 months, a lack of control over eating, eating a large amount of food within a 2 hour period.

 

Recovery definition examples:

 

  • Know your purpose

  • Coping with perfectionism

  • Resolving co-occurring issues such as anxiety and depression

  • Self-acceptance

  • Personal growth

 

The current model seems to place much emphasis on having to find your purpose, know who you are, love yourself & be clear on what you want in life, in order to achieve recovery. Although these things are important, it does not mean that you cannot recover without having all of these figured out. 

 

I like to think of these things as ‘life problems’, which everyone struggles with at one point or another. These problems are a continuing work in progress. You will feel huge improvements in these areas as part of recovery but the take away here is you do not need to have figured everything out first.

04/

Feeling like you have no control so you continue to feel stuck, feeling worse & worse about yourself.

Over time thoughts, feeling, behaviours & environmental triggers become programmed in the unconscious mind. This means that it can feel like your ED just takes over automatically & so impulsively. This is why you need a COMPLETE programme, targeting BOTH the unconscious & conscious minds, PLUS practical tools to use when it feels like your ED takes control.

05/

Traditional approaches & tales of recovery suggest it to take a long, tiring & complicated 3- 5 years. This drains your resources, motivation drops & you lose hope fighting the battle.

Yes, recovery is hard & takes a full commitment, but with the right treatment & understanding it doesn’t have to take years & years for them to feel better. Maybe that is partly down to the broad recovery definition, which sets up a huge expectation to need to have everything figured out in order to recover. 

06/

ED’s are believed to be am illness, a disease which leads you to feel broken. You over-analyse & try to figure out what is wrong with you, which damages your confidence & self-esteem.

The amount of times I hear that EDs are a sign of an underlying disease, an illness. I completely disagree. This just hands any last bit of strength, power or motivation over to your ED. It can also have detrimental effects in recovery, with people using it as an excuse for relapse or excusing their behaviour. You are not broken, nor unfixable. Your brain has made a miscalculation in the past in regards to food & this connection has been strengthened over time. The great news is, with the high plasticity of the brain you have the power to change this!

07/

Believing that you have to change your eating habits & focus on diet first. By paying more attention to food, it can feel like your ED becomes worse rather than better.

Many traditional approaches look at addressing food & behaviour first. Unfortunately, if you try to fix your behaviour without resolving what is driving that behaviour it can feel like you are in a battle with yourself. One part of you wants to change, but another kicks into action trying to sabotage your progress. This is long, tiring & ineffective. You need to address the internal struggles first &  learn emotional management from the inside out- not the outside-in. 

The solution? It is simpler than you think

 

A personalised programme of support from someone who has been where you are & understands.

Working 1:1 with a guide & personal mentor, supporting you every step of the way. We won't stop until you conquer.

Understanding your brain & learning tools & strategies to equip you with knowledge & power to build your confidence & motivation that you CAN do this.

Signature Programme

EATING DISORDER RECOVERY

Conquer & Shine’; Online Eating Disorder Programme

How is it different to other eating disorder help?

 

I believe that actually eating disorders aren’t really about food.  On a surface level they might be, but underneath the restricting, the calorie counting, the exercising & all the other behaviours that you do, there is usually a much bigger issue – an unconscious programme running which is driving your ED thoughts, feelings & behaviours, making you feel worthless, not good enough and lacking confidence.

Conquer & Shine in 6 simple but powerful steps

Eating Disorder Treatment Sydney

1. Responsibility- ready for change

The first thing I need from you is the ‘want’ for things to be different. You don’t need to know what different means, but that you are fed up where you are & can’t go on like this anymore. All I ask is for you to make a 100% commitment to yourself & go all in on this. If you give me 100% I will give you 150%.

 

2. Honesty about how your ED is impacting you & your life

In our first session we will deep dive into your eating disorder & how it is impacting you, others around you & your life. This will begin to build a clear picture of where you are & we can then set goals on what you want from us working together.

3. Education & Understanding of your brain

I believe that before any deep work can begin you need to have a clear understanding of your brain, the science of how it works & what is going on deep down, driving your ED. This forms the basis of my ‘you are not broken’ approach- there is something going on in your brain, in terms of the neurological connections which is keeping you stuck. You will be educated & begin to understand why you are where you are without the need to constantly analyse & overthink. 

4. Reprogramming your unconscious ED behaviours

With the understanding of your brain you will begin to realise that your Eating Disorder is simply a process which has been stored unconsciously. The deep work will begin when we look to understand what is driving your eating disorder behaviour & focus on rewiring these unhelpful connections in your brain.  You might not consciously know what they are & that’s ok – we’ll explore it together in a way that feels safe and comfortable for you.

 5. Rebuild your confidence and self-esteem

Once we’ve worked on resolving & reprogramming the underlying issues, we’ll work on helping you to build your feelings of self confidence, self-esteem & self worth, until we get to the next stage, which is where you’ll begin to feel ready to start making changes of your choice at a level & rate that you are ok with.

​6. Recovery for the whole family

Eating Disorders impact the whole family, who also need to be involved in the recovery process. This is important that we create a united front where everyone is on the same page, educated & involved in what they need to do to keep making progress. I offer free telephone, Skype & 1:1 support to parents/partners of any clients I see (keeping in mind that all client’s details & case notes are kept strictly confidential.)

 

 

Eating disorders are complicated & everyone experiences them in a different way – there is no ‘one size fits all’ process that works.  All the work I do with you will be individually tailored to your specific needs, circumstances & goals.

WHAT WOULD BE INCLUDED WITHIN YOUR CONQUER & SHINE EATING DISORDER PROGRAMME

1. Complementary appointment to get to know each other

If you are anything like I was, I saw many different therapists, often just for 1 session as I felt that they ‘didn’t get me’. This is why I offer a complementary 30 minute appointment in person or on Skype so we can get to know each other & from there we can make a decision whether we are the right match for each other. The ‘1 session then change' approach just slows down recovery & I want to make sure this does not happen for you.

2. 90 minute first session

This is where we delve a little deeper into you, your eating disorder & everything it is affecting in your life. I treat food as a symptom of something else going on for you & this session will look to explore where all of this came from & is the basis of how I build & what I include within your recovery programme.

3. Weekly outcome-based follow ups

Subsequent sessions will be weekly, either in person or on Skype. This ensures enough continuity & builds momentum when you begin to see changes. All follow ups are outcome-based rather than time-based so we will continue until whatever we are working on that week is resolved & you can leave feeling empowered, not cut off because of timings.

4. Weekly accountability tasks to complete

I am also here as your accountability buddy & part of this I will be asking you to complete a set of tasks each week between sessions. The purpose of these tasks is to continue to build on the great work we do in our sessions & to ensure we continue to progress over the next 7 days. These tasks can be anything from journalling, gratitude, self-love & kindness to working on diet, exercise or any physical symptoms.

5. Personalised between-session support programme

The thing that really got me about seeing a therapist was the fact that I could leave the session in a good place, but something may happen in the week & I would get triggered back & relapse. I felt un-supported & helpless knowing I had to wait another 5 days until I could see my therapist. 

 

The fact is 60% of changes happen outside sessions! This is why you will also be given your own personalised between-session support programme which includes:

 

  • Round the clock support from me via email, Whats app, Facebook or text. I often receive messages such as;“ help I’m feeling really anxious today & I don’t know what to do”. I am here for you to help you manage any unwanted thoughts or feelings BEFORE you become triggered.

  • You will be given tasks & strategies to use daily to help keep you on track.

  • Mid session check in via phone or Skype. If you feel like you need a check-in from your accountability buddy mid-week we can talk through the last few days & set you up for success until you see me. 

  • I will write you your own unique hypnosis recording for you to listen to before you go to sleep or as a calming tool. This again builds on the shifts which happen in our sessions & primes your unconscious for the deep-rooted changes which will help overcome the root cause of your eating disorder. 

6. Diet and Gastro-intestional symptom management & advice

It is well known that during recovery GI symptoms can develop & this can really slow down your progress. General diet advice may not be helpful when you are suffering with GI symptoms. I have a diagnosed digestive condition which impacted my recovery, so I had to look outside the normal gut management advice. I will help you to manage any symptoms you are suffering with & offer diet & supplement advice to ensure that you stay on track. 

7. Complementary monthly sessions for struggling parents/family members

Eating Disorders do not just impact the individual. There can also be huge emotional impact on their families & people close to them. My ED nearly destroyed my family relationship as nobody knew how to cope & help. This created tension & fear at home, rather than a safe place to recover. This can seriously impact the length of recovery.

Your mum, dad, brother, aunt, best friend will be offered a free session per month to support them through recovery.

8. Access to motivational tools & advice for FREE

You will be sent weekly tools, tips and strategies to keep you motivated and on track.

 7 REASONS WHY  CONQUER & SHINE’ EATING DISORDER PROGRAMME IS HIGHLY EFFECTIVE

1.

I spent 10 years suffering with Anorexia and Bulimia, having tried every therapy under the sun. I get it. I know what it is like to feel totally alone and that nobody understands where I’m coming from. What you are feeling, I totally understand and this is why I believe my approach is different. I am here to support you every step of the way.

True Understanding

2.

I have been on the client end, feeling like just another number. I work to get to know you, how you do your problems and what YOU want to achieve. Every programme is personalised to you, with my full support in-between sessions to keep you on track.

Your Recovery Your Way

3.

Often the issues with food, the anxiety and other psychological problems are just the symptom. even though these are important they are not the thing to be focusing on to start with. They are usually the result of something going on at a much deeper level. Rather than stick a band-aid on these symptoms we will get right to the root of what is driving your ED and other problems.

No More Band-Aid solutions

4.

We dont get what we want in life we get what we believe we deserve. So even though you may want to recover from your eating disorder you may have some underlying limiting beliefs which are holding you back from full recovery. Beliefs are the driving force for many of our behaviours, including your eating disorder.

Overcoming Your Limiting Beliefs

5.

60% of changes happen outside of sessions. This is why I provide every client with their own personalised between-session support programme which includes 24/7 support from myself.

Round the Clock Support

6.

I aim to educate, inspire and empower my clients by teaching them techniques and tools they can use in every day life- you have the power within you, you just may not have the knowledge, YET!

I teach you skills and strategies IN ADDITION to deeper transformational work 

7.

What is said between us, stays between us! I want to provide a space for complete trust, honesty and transparency with no judgement.

My service is 100% private and discreet
